Dr. Horrible's Emmy appearance

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along BlogIn case you missed our live blog of the event and you haven't been checking around the Interwebs, Emmy host Neil Patrick Harris did a quick skit starring his character Doctor Horrible from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. The sketch guest-starred Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer and a couple of other cast members. Oh, and by the way, that particular Internet series won an Emmy itself.

One can only wonder if Joss Whedon had a hand in the sketch. It certainly seems that way. The sketch used his sort of style and humor, particularly the bits where the screen was "buffering".

Fortunately, and perhaps in appreciation of the existing rabid fanbase of anything Whedon-related, a clip of the segment has already made it to YouTube (so TV Squad itself cannot be sued for taking someone else's intellectual property. You hear that CBS?). Hopefully it remains up there for a little while. The clip of the Dr. Horrible appearance at the Emmys follows after the jump.

Even if he did have a hand in it, that style of humor has been around since long before Whedon. What is with the love affair with him on this blog, anyway?

Props to the Ernst and Young accountants also for carrying the gag to completion and with such good comedic timing.

I'm a bit annoyed I didn't get to see this. I'm in Australia, and over here they cut it out. They showed Chandra Wilson and Kate Walsh presenting, then skipped straight to Alec Baldwin presenting. Thank god for the internet.

Whedon received a credit for the segment during the long crawl at the end of the show. It went by quickly, so I didn't catch if it was writing, directing, or both.
